Another year down and yet another year where you failed to live up to the relationship goals you set for yourself. Cast your memory back to 2014, to that good old time when resolutions were enthusiastically made and then quickly forgotten.
But despite your best efforts to not let jealousy bring you down (yet again), you tried your hardest to ape your favourite celebrities and mostly failed. This was a year of many ups and downs. Taylor Swift wrote new breakup songs, Adele finally seemed to move on from her heartbreak (wonder what her current partner has to say about that) and who can forget the numerous Bollywood shaadis?
So here we are, looking back at some of the most headline grabbing couples of 2015. Love them or hate them, but as some very annoying person once said, you cannot ignore them. So the next time you find yourself losing your crap over Kim Kardashian’s inevitable third child, look deep inside the far reaches of your soul and ask yourself: Why? And hopefully a rational, marginally sane voice will answer: Just because.
Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput
Yes, this was the year all your male friends made fun of Shahid for marrying a girl much younger than him while sneaking in secret ogles and you temporarily deluded yourself into believing that you had a shot with him - Shahid that is, not your creepy guy friend.
Johnny Depp and Amber Heard
Actually, their dogs kind of stole their thunder down under for a while. But while the Hollywood power couple remained just that – a power couple, we couldn’t help but notice how Depp seems to be getting creepier with age and how having arm candy in the shape of Amber Heard was probably not the best idea.
Jennifer Aniston Justin Theroux
But enough about dubious celeb couples, here’s a genuinely heart-warming one. We are all still massively butthurt about how things ended between her and Bradolf Pittler, so seeing Rachel happy warms the cockles of our icy hearts.
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel
They had a kid this year didn’t they? Wait, let’s check. Yeah, they did. And they called him Silas, which isn’t as bad as it could’ve been. For that, look no further than…
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
Somehow Kim K and Mr West have managed to pull of the impossible. No, they haven’t sorted the Israel Palestine conflict but they have nailed the next best thing: Coming up with the perfect star kid name. Saint West. Saint effin West! You could actually be forgiven for thinking it was some kind of parody for a minute or two but no, Saint West is a real person with an equally real future R&B career.
Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello
If anything, let these two be what you want to see yourself as in 5 years. Chiselled to perfection by God himself, probably with the feather of a Phoenix, nothing can put your existence into perspective better than watching a perfect woman get hitched to a perfect man.
Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik
Q. Will they, won’t they? Are they, are they not? Have they, have they not? Did they, did they not?
A. Who cares?
Serena Williams and Drake
Drake and his dodgy dancing is the reason for Serena’s great year. But also, Drake and his dodgy dancing is the reason for all her failures.
Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx
Poor Katie Holmes. We can only imagine how weird it must’ve been living with a perpetually excited diminutive man who believes that an alien named Xenu transported humans to Earth in a ‘50s aeroplane. He needs a solid audit to sort out his thetans we say.
Benedict Cumberbatch and Sofie Hunter
Frankly , we’re feeling kind of dirty for even including them with this bunch of degenerates. But we feel we need to end this on a positive note. So who better than the adorable Cumberbatch and his perfect new bride Sofie Hunter. And let’s not forget the Cumberbaby.
